    Has anyone used the Loupe and the sensor cleaning lens pen? Not sure if I should get the sensor cleaning pen or swabs?

    I have a loupe and fluid/swabs. Most of the lens pen designs use carbon or similar to clean the sensor. They clean well, but often leave bits of carbon behind..which you then need to clean the sensor to get rid of.

    Mongo agrees with Rick. The "pen" is good for lens elements and filters etc but Mongo would not use it on a sensor.

    I have a D600 with recurring sensor dirt/lube problem. It has been sent to the recommended Brisbane repairer and it came back clean. A few hundred shots later and it's dirty again.

    I am in the process of trying to come up with a cleaning regime for myself as I can't afford $80-odd bucks + postage every time it gets dirty (I live in FNQ). *removed - please read the site rules (3-7)*

    I've just ordered a wet kit from Camera Check Point and will report back.

    *again removed as per the site rules - you cannot complain about products, companies or service till you have both 30 days membership and 50 posts*
